Sent to Wycombe District Council less than a minute later

I am writing about the wooden fencing surrounding the green on Turners Field in Downley.

It has gone into disrepair and collapsed in parts and in parts is unstable. I have been liaising with Barratt Homes who developed the site in 2009 about fixing the fencing. However they have now responding to say that it is not their responsibility and the site has been adopted by the Council.

Therefore I am hoping that you can help arrange for the fencing to be fixed?

It is currently a hazard to any child who plays in the play park or the green. I also have concerns with the misuse of the green, be it by teenagers on bikes/mopeds (which we’ve had issues with in recent months) as there is greater access to the green, or the potential for cars/caravans to be driven on to the green (especially with the issues High Wycombe has had with travellers over the Summer).

I am currently unable to let my children play freely outside my house as I don’t want them to get hurt by the fencing so it’s a particular point of concern for me.

Many thanks for your help.

Best wishes,

  • I reported this last week and received a 'resolved' email from you. Enquiry number 46069777. This has most definitely NOT been resolved! If this is not highways then please let us know who to contact. ALL the fencing is a decade old, rotting and as you have seen above totally collapsed in areas. This needs addressing URGENTLY either by yourselves or WDC... Please speak to each other and come to an arrangement before someone gets hurt. Thank you
